Windmill

ColourPop Windmill Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-copper base with lighter golden copper pearl throughout that gave it a smooth sheen.

  • Semi-opaque with brush, opaque coverage with fingertip (slightly “more” pigmented than typical)
  • Emollient, wet to touch
  • Quick to dry down to powder-like finish
  • Blendable, easy to apply, did not lift up base products
  • Long-wearing (10 hours is typical for this formula)

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.15 oz. - $66.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "buildable" coverage and can be applied with fingertips (which will yield "higher coverage") or a brush (for sheerer coverage). It's a cream-based product that has a subtle, "wet" feel to it but never has the thickness of a true cream-based blush.

It goes on with the smoothness of a cream formulation but diffuses and blends (without lifting up one's base) more like a powder product. The product sets to a powder finish, so the product won't slide around during the day.

On me, the wear tends to be between eight and 10 hours. Most shades have medium, buildable pigmentation with some being semi-opaque to opaque on occasion. They are typically blendable, easy to use, and long-wearing.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I, too, have dupes… but I’m a little confused, because they look MUCH lighter on both you and me (Smashbox Rosemantic and MAC Highlight the Truth, specifically). I guess I don’t need to worry about the difference in depth, since I don’t need this one.

Meanwhile, Christine, although it’s semi-off-topic, this eye look with the blue lower lashline and pink shimmery lid is spectacularly pretty; I’ve noticed it every time. Will it show up in Looks soon, or can you link the way you did it here?

Thanks,
Emily
